    I have a number of questions. Bonus point for answering them all...

    I have a camera that I have set to capture on "raw". I've "triggered" and got an image. Then I have the option to "save". When I "save", I have the option to save as a "bmp/jpg" or as a "tutti" file.
    What is a tutti file?

    I saved as both versions. Both times, I got the same error message "Could not read BMP file"... "because it is not in 24-bit color format".
    I thought I was suppose to bring it in as a raw file. What am I doing wrong here?

    I then set capture to jpeg. Now I can bring the file in, but when I do "Convert Color", the image doesn't come out as expected. What knobs do I turn or touch to get this to work?

    I then set capture to bitmap. I can bring the file into Maxim DL, but "Convert Color" is not an option (can't select).
